As Tamil Nadu continues to mourn the death of former chief minister Jayalalithaa, a tweet from veteran actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan has created quite a flutter – the actor has being accused of being ‘insensitive’, reports Times of India.

His tweet in Tamil on Tuesday, which roughly translated to: “Deepest sympathies for all those who depended on her”, did not go down well with the supporters of the former actor-politician, who trolled him. Kamal was accused of being insensitive to the memory of Jayalalithaa.

Kamal and Jayalalithaa had a fall out in 2013 after her government banned his film Vishwaroopam to “maintain law and order in the state”.

Jayalalithaa said she feared violence if the film was released.

Several Muslim groups had objected to the film and petitioned the government to not allow it to be released.

The film was eventually released.
